    Every now and then Leopard gets lazy and unmounting/ejecting a DMG quits working. I cant CMD-E it, right click eject it, drag to trash.

    The only thing that works is:
    diskutil unmountDisk /Volumes/VolumeName

    or

    umount /Volumes/VolumeName


    Killing Finder and re-starting it fixes this. Odd.

    I have the same problem as well, but it's not often that it happens. I usually drag the file into Trash and if it stays on the desktop, I just log out and back in and it's gone.

    I have a feeling it's just a bug, but I'm not sure.

    This happens to me too. And as you mentioned, killing Finder normally fixes the problem.

    This happened to me last week too, but I was too much in "Linux mode" and was looking for the /etc/cdrom to unmount...so all mountable volumes will always be under /Volumes?

    Thanks for the tip,
